Mother Tongues Festival was a new festival from Mother Tongues which celebrated linguistic diversity and showcased artistic activities that involved the use of the many languages spoken in Ireland.

This Galway 2020 Small Towns Big Ideas’ project featured musical performances, storytelling, poetry readings and workshops for all ages. Children and adults were immersed in a world of languages and cultures. The goal of the festival was to employ different art forms to celebrate and reflect on the strong link between language and cultural identity and belonging.

Taking place in venues across Galway City on 22 and 23 February 2019 there was  something for everyone.
